The Ancient Call: For thousands of years, in cultures around the world, when the time was right the men of the village came for the adolescent boys. Guiding young males toward a solid and responsible manhood was men's sacred work. Today, too many men are not answering this man-making call. The result is an epidemic of lost, damaged, and under-male-nourished boys. Man-Making is a practical and inspirational guide book that shows men how to awaken and apply their instinctive man-making skills. By following the easy, 'how to' instructions, and reading the many stories men have contributed, every man, regardless of his level of commitment to this work, will find something he can do to help a boy or boys on their journey to manhood. Your Call to Action: If you're a man, you wouldn't be reading this if you hadn't heard the man-making call. Right now, there are boys around you who need the benefit of your wisdom and support to grow into responsible and self-assured men. You are the right man for this work, now is the time, and the boys are waiting. This book is the answer to the call you hear. Will you answer?
